Kimi’s wife to fight for title

The wife of 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen will next weekend fight for her own title.

Jenni Dahlman-Raikkonen, a model and former Miss Scandinavia who married Ferrari’s Finnish driver in 2004, is listed as one of the 165 international entrants of the prestigious Munchen-Indoor equestrian event, to be held at the Olympiahalle in Munich.

The German newspaper TZ speculates that Raikkonen, 28, may attend, even though he is allergic to horses.

“With Kimi you never know,” his manager Steve Robertson is quoted as saying.

Jenni owns four horses, three of which were reportedly bought for her by Raikkonen. They are stabled in Riesenbeck, Germany.

“Of course I support my wife,” Kimi said recently.

“You can see the passion in Jenni for her own sport. The same passion which I have for racing — although I do have more horsepower,” he joked.

“I have tried riding with Jenni but I’m so badly allergic to horses that I couldn’t really do it,” Raikkonen added.
